City Councilman Merv Bennett said residents in the Cragmoor neighborhood have approached him with complaints about parking problems created by students at the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs.
During the monthly Mayor’s Counsel meeting Thursday, Bennett said he’s been told that the problem has existed a for a long time and that it’s so bad that homeowners can’t even park in front of their homes or have guests.
Mayor Steve Bach said he would meet with his staff and then talk to the chancellor.
“This problem goes back to 1966,” Bach said. “I am one of the offenders. I used to park in front of somebody’s house.”
